J.Crew just put up quite a bit of new goods for fall on their site today. Read on to see some of the highlights that are particularly good, and also check out their August catalog for men.

The tweed sportcoats look very nice and I’m probably going to be ordering one of each. I would have liked to have seen them stick with the Abraham Moon tweeds on the herringbone jackets though, instead of fabrics from a unnamed “renowned” mill in Italy. The yellow cashmere sweater is a great touch.

I’m on the fence with this newer navy blazer. Why no more metal buttons J.Crew? This looks more like it’s part of a suit.

The Barbour Bedale jacket would be a solid addition to your wardrobe if you don’t already have a waxed cotton jacket. I hope these are the new contemporary models that Barbour has been offering lately, which is a much slimmer fit than the regular classic models. The new fatigue jacket is also pretty interesting and could be a cheaper alternative to those offered by Engineered Garments or Wings and Horns.

The ribbed cotton sweater jacket is a great piece and I still wear the one I have from last year regularly. I’ve also become a big fan of some of their fleece products like the crewnecks which are nice to wear on the weekends.

Lastly the shirts. I’ve already seen the utility shirts in my local store and found the fabric on these to very soft, almost as if it were cotton flannel. The new flap pocket shirt gets a mention because of its reminiscence to the J.Press flap pocket shirt and I’d like to see J.Crew make these in more colors in the future.
